Once inside you can almost relive the terrifying experiences of these soldiers - harrowing to get this close to the action.

It's a very quiet memorial. We were the only visitors when we were there. The memorial is so well thought out and made with stone

Interesting site to visit and a great memorial to the fallen soldiers who were killed. Just a short ride from the centre of Kigali and a must see to gain insights to the events that unfolded in Rwanda.
